Romans 13: 1-2: 1: "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God." 2: "Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves." The pastor is

I'm getting a bit nervous myself, LR. People around here know the instructions and try to follow them but just don't know how to distance well enough. And shop workers (especially fast food!) aren't up to speed with Food Safe practices. It's all putting me right off eating. Or shopping. Or going out. (Which is kind of the point!). But there's only so much canned food I can stomach, literally. Som

Most of the deaths in BC have been in nursing homes. A combination of age and proximity. As they say, this virus is very contagious and very deadly. That is what makes it so different from the seasonal influenza that some equate this pandemic to. It's different for those two reasons (by a factor of 10, as I understand it but hey BoJ, you're the math guy). Of course, many elderly folks succ

That is very useful information, blindguy. Yet again, something many of us don't have to think about, and so we don't realize. It's difficult enough as it is to traverse through life. Then some people have these additional obstacles placed in their way, literally. I'm glad you and kentish have drawn our attention to these issues. I'd like to raise them in various venues as, unfortunately, m

It's nice to see you, Tyson. Yes, it is sad. You obviously were looking out for their best interests. I think that it's easy for people to feel embarrassed or foolish when something is pointed out to them that they should perhaps change. Their reaction is expressed as anger against the friend who is actually trying to help them, not meaning their comments to be taken as criticism. Perhaps w

They told us here in Canada today to be careful with our "medical waste"; i.e. gloves and masks. People are discarding used materials on the streets where they are a potential hazard to anyone who picks them up, including sanitation guys. If the gloves or masks have CV on them that makes them an extreme hazard to anyone who touches them, obviously. They're saying you should put your

In response to some questions of kathleen's and Third of Five: . 1. Third of Five: According to your nursing instructor ("mentor"), "viral load" is the main consideration in disease transmission and therefore asymptomatic transmission is "not possible". This is not what experts are saying, according to much material that I am reading. Yes, viral load is a big

I was going to say that, LW, but I couldn't think of what would cause that, if you mean catching COVID. I was going to say they may end up covered in blood but not the way they expect it to go. But it doesn't work that way with CV, as far as I know. Covered in dirt, perhaps. When the virus gets 'em.

Solid Rock Church in Cincinnati is ignoring social distancing guidelines (now mandatory in many of the states in America as well as in Canada and many other countries). The church is planning on continuing to hold mass gatherings. A reporter recently spoke to several people driving into the church parking lot, asking them why they were ignoring expert medical advice that people avoid congregating

I never heard much talk about Jesus in my three years in. As a supposedly Christian religion, that is a bit startling. Smith and Briggy were front and centre and the Mormon prophets of "these latter days".

Thanks all, for making this a fun thread. I know the times are serious yet laughing is therapeutic. I appreciate the swerve to making the joke fit Mormonism too. I knew someone/s could convert it to amuse us. My friend who told me the joke was a little hesitant as he knows I was a JW and thought maybe I wouldn't appreciate it. Fortunately for me, I am *so* over it and yes, I laughed. Withou

A friend told me this joke today: If you get an email with the title "Knock, Knock", don't open it. It's a Jehovah's Witness working from home. --- Of course, some bright exmo could very likely come up with one about knocking on heaven's door, aka the temple veil. I vaguely recall some knocking going on there. A little levity in the Age of COVID. We sure as heck need it
